'Destiny 2' Details Into the Light's Two-Month Content Update

by Rainier on March 14, 2024 @ 3:35 p.m. PDT

Destiny 2 is a first-person action game that takes the player on an epic journey to defend humanity from annihilation.

Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force, led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion. He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee. You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities. To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.

In Destiny 2, the last safe city on Earth has fallen and lay in ruins, occupied by a powerful new enemy and his elite army, the Red Legion. Every player creates their own character called a "Guardian," humanity's chosen protectors. As a Guardian in Destiny 2, players must master new abilities and weapons to reunite the city's forces, stand together and fight back to reclaim their home.


Bungie announced that the two-month content update, Destiny 2: Into the Light, is launching on April 9, 2024, available to all players.

Leading up to the launch, a series of three livestreams featuring the development team will showcase new content, features, and rewards with hands-on gameplay. These streams are scheduled for March 19, March 26, and April 2. 

Additionally, viewers will have the chance to earn two unique emblems through Twitch Drops during the livestream series.

Destiny 2 is also collaborating with Ghostbusters to offer themed in-game items on March 19 for the release of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, in theaters March 22. The Ghostbusters Firehouse accessory pack includes a Slimer Exotic Ghost shell, a Garraka-inspired Exotic Sparrow, and an Ecto-1-themed Exotic ship. As a bonus, any player who purchases a Ghostbusters item from the Eververse in-game will be eligible to download a physical Bungie Rewards Slimer Ghost shell papercraft mask, at no extra cost.

Guardian Games All-Stars is still underway, now through March 26. Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks are vying for class glory through different in-game challenges. To commemorate this special All-Star event, all players who participate can enjoy the new hoverboard Skimmer vehicle, complete with tricks! 

DESTINY 2: INTO THE LIGHT STARTS ON APRIL 9 

Today, we are ready to share when our next big content update is coming. Destiny 2: Into the Light will launch on April 9 along with Update 7.3.6, which also includes further tuning to the sandbox and quality-of-life updates. 

Destiny 2: Into the Light will deliver new game content, available for all players, throughout the months of April and May in preparation for the launch of The Final Shape in June. And what types of content, you might ask? Well, we will share more information about that very soon...  

COME AND WATCH US PLAY 

As soon as Tuesday, you can see what Destiny 2: Into the Light is all about in not one, not two, but three livestreams! Each will focus on different part of the content update and be presented by our developers, who will be sharing tons of information and providing a hands-on preview. 

The first livestream will take place at 10 AM PT on March 19. The next two will air on March 26 and April 2, both starting at 10AM PT. Go follow us on Twitch and mark the dates on your calendars so you don't miss any of the big news.  

While you watch, keep an eye on the two new Twitch Drops available. If you watch for at least 30 minutes across any of the three livestreams, you will earn the “Those Held Dear” emblem. And if you watch for at least 2 hours total, you will also earn an additional emblem called “Echo Diamond.”

MAKING ENHANCED TRAITS MORE OBTAINABLE 

Over the last year, the Weapons team has been collecting a lot of feedback on weapon crafting and enhancement. We recognize players want more access to enhanced perks, so they can make their favorite gear even more capable. 

While we aren't fully ready to talk about the entire weapon landscape of The Final Shape, the new and reprised weapons you collect from the Prophecy dungeon and from Guardian Games All-Stars, as well as the new weapons in rotation for Iron Banner, Trials of Osiris, and Nightfalls, will all retroactively be enhanceable when the Final Shape releases on June 4. 

So, keep this in mind when you start earning the following weapons: 

Trials of Osiris 

  • The Prophet Scout Rifle 
  • The Summoner Auto Rifle 

Iron Banner 

  • Tusk of the Boar Grenade Launcher 
  • Multimach CCX Submachine Gun 

Nightfalls 

  • Wild Style Grenade Launcher 
  • The Slammer Sword 

Guardian Games All-Stars 

  • Taraxippos Scout Rifle 
  • The Title Submachine Gun  
  • Hullabaloo Grenade Launcher 

Prophecy Dungeon 

  • Prosecutor Auto Rifle 
  • Adjudicator Submachine Gun 
  • Relentless Pulse Rifle 
  • Judgment Hand Cannon 
  • Darkest Before Pulse Rifle 
  • A Sudden Death Shotgun 

GUARDIAN GAMES ALL-STARS ENTERS ITS SECOND WEEK 

Shout out to all the Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans for making their class proud this past week and a half. The Guardian Games All-Stars event entered its second week this past Tuesday, and even if Hunters have an advantage right now, there's still plenty time for any of the classes to win..  

Here are the latest standings: 

ClassGoldSilverBronze
Hunters710
Warlocks071

Remember that those Focus Activities happening during the day have a huge impact on the daily winner. The same thing goes for Diamond Medallions, which not only get your class closer to winning, but also get you a guaranteed Guardian Games Memento, too. 

FIND YOUR FIRETEAM IN MORE PLACES 

In case you haven't noticed yet, this week we updated our Destiny 2 Companion App to support the current Fireteam Finder system. It's launching in beta, so please bear with us if you see anything not working perfectly at first. The legacy Find Fireteam will still work during this time, but our intention is to phase it out. Starting March 19, the web version of Fireteam Finder will also be available for all players, also as a beta. 

Fireteam Finder on web and mobile apps brings additional features outside of the game to help you plan for upcoming events. When creating new listings, you have the option to create a Playing Now or Scheduled listing. Scheduled listings will not appear in-game until you activate them to become a Playing Now listing. You are only allowed to have one Playing Now listing and must be logged into the game to activate. 

In the future, we plan to include notification support for Fireteam Finder in both the app and web versions, along with other improvements as we work to remove the Beta tag. Stay tuned for more details in the future.

PLAYER SUPPORT REPORT 

The official class endorsement of the Player Support Team goes to Warlocks. As always.

PLAYER PRIVACY AND SAFETY UPDATE

In our ongoing efforts to promote player privacy and safety online, Destiny 2 now requires date of birth information from players.

When players log in, those who haven't updated their birthdate on Bungie.net will be met with a birthdate screen before they can access Destiny 2. This is a one-time account request and will be mandatory for all players before they can enter the game.

Our Date of Birth Requirements article has information regarding parental controls, answers to commonly asked questions, and more.

PLAYSTATION VOICE AND TEXT CHAT

We are aware of an issue preventing PlayStation players from utilizing voice and text chat since Update 7.3.5. We are actively working on a solution and will deploy it as soon as possible.

CLAIM YOUR EVENT CARD ITEMS 

This year’s Guardian Games concludes at the weekly reset on March 26 at 10 AM PT. Players should claim any completed objectives and available rewards from their Guardian Games Event Card prior to the conclusion of the event.

Those who have purchased the Event Card must also claim the Guardian Games Event Pack within the Event Card to obtain those items. The Event Card and any unclaimed rewards will no longer be available once the event ends.

CODE OF CONDUCT UPDATES

As we expand into new and exciting projects, we have revised our Code of Conduct with new Community Standards and Codes of Conduct. These updates outline the principles we ask our community to follow, fostering respect, fair play, and camaraderie, all of which are essential for the future of our community.

KNOWN ISSUES

While we continue investigating various known issues, here is a list of the latest issues that were reported to us in our #Help Forum:
